VR-Ready for today and beyond

The new HTC Vive and Oculus-certified Aurora was engineered to exceed today’s virtual reality requirements and was designed to create the most efficient use of space. The top of the system provides a natural place to rest your VR headset when not in use, and with a conveniently placed handle located near the top, you can organize all your wires in one place, running them to the back of the system and out of the way. With 15 USB ports, this system is more than ready to handle everything needed to attach your VR headset. And with convenient tool-less access, it offers easy upgradeability for the next wave of VR.

Evolved, inside and out

The Alienware Aurora features a meticulous, zero-fat design and is the first of its kind to offer tool-less upgrades to graphics cards, hard drives and memory.

Designed to keep cool: Inspired by the thermal ergonomics of the Area-51, the Aurora provides optimal air intake on the front and right panels and an exhaust fan on top for maximum airflow and cooling of internal components.

Pro-level gaming starts here

Competitive gamers and professional esports teams around the globe leverage the power of Alienware to compete at the highest level. As one of the most successful squads in the world, Team Liquid maintains its lead by designating Alienware as the team’s official gaming PCs, monitors, keyboards and mice.

Alienware machines also put the power behind competitive gaming tournaments, like ELEAGUE and ESL, because the best gamers in the world expect gear engineered with the unmatched performance and design only Alienware can deliver.

Engineered for the future

Innovative, tool-less access: A uniquely designed PSU swing-arm keeps graphics and expansion cards safely secured and easy to upgrade – along with memory modules and up to 5 storage drives –thanks to tool-less accessibility.

Iconic & quiet design: Customizable AlienFX lighting gives the Aurora a distinct, dynamic look and its whisper-quiet operation allows you to get lost in the game without noisy distractions.

Uncompromising performance

Engineered to overclock: The Alienware Aurora was designed to fully support custom upgrades with available configurations up to 8th Gen K-series processors factory overclocked up to 4.6GHz across all 6 cores and up to 64GB of DDR4 at 2933MHz.

Stunning graphics capabilities: Tested and benchmarked at UHD 4K resolutions and beyond in games and synthetic benchmarks, the Aurora offers brilliant resolution and exceptional frame rates, with graphics options up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti.

High-speed and hardcore: Maximize gaming performance and capacity with up to 5 solid-state drives using a mix of 1x PCIe NVMe SSD and 4x SSDs.

Killer Wireless: The Killer 1535 includes our ExtremeRange Technology with two external 5GHz signal amplifiers to improve your performance at longer distances. The External Power Amplifier and the Low Noise Amplifier work together to increase and maximize your WiFi range and to amplify your wireless signals so they cut through the noise to deliver your data as quickly as possible. The Killer E2500’s Lag and Latency Reduction Technology accelerates your highest priority network traffic, such as your game, and makes sure that it never has to wait behind less important traffic.

Access your data faster and for less

Intel Optane M.2 Memory provides SSD responsiveness for systems with a HDD. Based on 3D XPOINT technology, it uses memory layers stacked in a 3D manner and breakthrough materials capable of performance that can switch states 1000x faster than NAND memory cells. This 3D XPOINT technology is closer to the processor, reducing lag and increasing performance over NAND SSDs or traditional fast hard drives. A perfect solution for gamers looking for SSD like performance at a fraction of the cost.

Get deeper than ever before

Reengineered to support up to dual 300W graphics cards (600W total graphics power), the Alienware Aurora now features more dedicated graphics power than any previous model.

Ready to enable jaw-dropping 12K* gameplay with support from NVIDIA Surround Technology, the Aurora offers an intensely immersive experience that plunges you directly into the heart of the game. It’s not what serious gamers want in a midtower desktop – it’s what they demand.

Experience the full spectrum

AlienFX uses 20 different colors to create over 8,000 unique themes to give your machine a more personalized look. Once you’ve finished your theme, you can save and upload it to the Alienware Arena community site where you can share your custom creation with others and download any you find. And for times when you want a little less visual stimulation, AlienFX allows you to “go dark” by disabling all lighting effects until you’re ready to turn them back on.

Alienware Command Center

AlienAdrenaline: Featuring customizable game and application options, a system performance optimizer and a performance monitoring tool, AlienAdrenaline provides users all the tools they need to keep one step ahead of the competition.

Thermal Controls: Change settings and monitor internal temperatures and speeds of certain fans within your PC using the Active Thermals module.
